The Disaster Recovery Framework –DRF (in Portuguese PREPOC) was prepared under the leadership of Mozambique’s Cabinet for Post-Idai Reconstruction, with support from the African Development Bank (AfDB), the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN) and the World Bank (WB). Consultations with government authorities and partners took place between July 4 and August 15 2019 to develop the DRF as a common framework for the government at all levels and across all line ministries as well as for international partners engaged in the country’s recovery and reconstruction.
The present DRF sets the vision, strategic objectives, and principles for Mozambique’s recovery over the next five years in response to Cyclones Idai and Kenneth. It presents the institutional and coordination arrangements for recovery, the planning and implementation modalities, the recovery needs across sectors, financing and financial management mechanisms, as well as the framework for monitoring and evaluation.
The DRF is based on the Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) conducted between April 16 and May 2nd 2019, building on its core findings and recommendations. The PDNA estimated significant damage to the country’s infrastructure, productive and social sectors. The total damage caused by the Idai and Kenneth is estimated to be USD$1.51 billion and the loss at USD$1.48 billion.
